2013 年 1 月 30 日 コメント 993 件






Taipower claimed their 17th Chinese Taipei championship but this time the reigning champions had to do it the hard way with the title in the balance until the final kick of the season last Thursday.

The two top teams – Taipower and Taipei Tatung – went into the final round drawn together level on points but the former,vancouver canucks site, holding a seven-goal advantage, knew a draw would suffice.

Indeed, as happened when they last met in October,los angeles dodgers cap, the two could not be separated and the thrilling 2-2 draw meant Taipower were victors once again. Tatung falling agonisingly short of a maiden title once again,autographed basketballs, having missed out last season following a final day draw.

It has proved quite a year for Taipower who won their first ever international trophy in September – the AFC Presidents Cup – with a dramatic 3-2 victory over Cambodia’s Phnom Penh Crown in Kaohsiung.

Santos struggle to replace Robinho

2013 年 1 月 10 日 コメント 1,013 件






“> Replacing Robinho was always going to be a difficult task. Since his explosion onto the scene at the front end of 2002, the fleet-footed forward inspired Santos to two Brasileiro titles before a big money move to Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Fittingly, his final appearance in the Santos colours ended with the Vila Belmiro side winning 3-2 at Paysandu. It was a result that left the club second in the Brasileiro standings, level on points with leaders Corinthians.

When they won their ensuing contest, 2-0 against Coritiba, to assume outright leadership of the competition, the supporters’ post-Robinho blues quickly disappeared. As equally uplifting as the result was the performance of 21-year-old Geílson, who – while donning the number 7 shirt worn so memorably by the former ‘King of the Dribble’ – scored a brace to secure the points for Santos. The home crowd had been left convinced that a new star had emerged – one that could help fill the colossal void created by the exit of their talisman.

Six weeks and eight matches on from the Round 23 victory, the tide has well and truly turned. Santos have managed just two wins from those eight games and Geílson has looked a shadow of the player that destructed Coritiba.

Goodbye, Gallo
After unsatisfactory draws against Atlético-PR and Flamengo, pressure mounted on coach Gallo, a former Santos midfielder whose appointment back in March had drawn opposition from certain quarters. A 2-1 home success over state rivals Palmeiras did warrant a brief reprieve but when Santos lost 4-3 against Fluminense in Rio, the inevitable dismissal occured.

Nelsinho Baptista, a shrewd tactician who had coached in Colombia, Saudi Arabia, Chile and Japan,cheap atlanta braves t shirts, was made the club’s chief target to replace Gallo. Having failed to reach an accord with Corinthians over assuming responsibility in the Parque São Jorge hot-seat, Nelsinho had no such problems striking a deal with Santos.

He wasn’t the only new arrival at the Vila Belmiro. The playing staff he inherited was reinforced by the incomings of 2002 World Cup winner Luizão and former FC Porto ace Cláudio Pitbull. It was quite a welcome for the new man at the helm and, once again, the Santos supporters were filled with expectancy.  “Quarteto Santástico”
Much hype surrounded the offensive foursome Santos now boasted, comprising the two new arrivals along with current Brazilian international Ricardinho and former Barcelona and Olympiakos star Giovanni. Modelled on the Seleção’s “Magic Quartet”, it was expected that the “Quarteto Santástico” would wreak havoc upon opposition defences.

“It’s great for a trainer to adopt a team with such quality. We have a very good attack, with Pitbull and Luizão, two midfielders with quality (Ricardinho and Giovanni), as well as two excellent wingbacks (Paulo César and Kléber),” Nelsinho enthused.

“I believe that, as the games and the training sessions pass by, this side will become stronger and stronger. Cláudio Pitbull and Luizão are excellent forwards. They are stylish and will complement each other very well,vancouver canucks games,” he added.

His debut in command saw Santos entertain Fortaleza, in a game from which they were overwhelming favourites to take three points. After announcing his starting lineup Nelsinho Baptista declared; “On paper, it’s a very good team. Now we need to put it into practice.”

The Santos tactician even has his Fortaleza counterpart convinced. “They will give a debut to a new attack, formed by players with quality. Besides this, they have Giovanni and Ricardinho, who are excellent,” commented the visitors’ coach Hélio dos Anjos.

But any suspicions that might have been held about the Santos frontline’s new-found potency were swiftly dashed. With Ricardinho, Giovanni and in particular Luizão all ineffectual,devon hester jersey, the Peixe were forced to settle for a discouraging goalless draw.

Goal shy
Subsequent performances have hardly exuded confidence and alarmingly, the once-formidable attack that netted a record 103 goals en route to claiming the 2004 Brasileiro title, has looked decidedly impotent. In fact, Santos have managed just 8 goals in their last 7 matches. For fans of a club popularly recognised as neutral supporters’ “second favourite team”, it’s an embarrassing statistic.

As Robinho attempts to realize a dream of becoming the world’s greatest player, his former team’s aspirations of winning a third Brasileiro title in four seasons, have all but vanished. The slump since the 21-year-old’s departure has seen the reigning champions nosedive from the summit of the league table to seventh position in the standings, 11 points off the pace.

In March 2002, Robinho made his Santos debut helping them end a six-game winless run with victory against Guarani. For followers of the club, it’s just a pity that a miserable sequence of results also came to occur after his departure.

Ramos wins in Real league debut

2012 年 10 月 9 日 コメント 10,691 件





An early goal for Gonzalo Higuain was enough to give Real Madrid a 1-0 victory over Valencia on Saturday and the first win for Juande Ramos in La Liga as coach. Real bounced back from the 2-0 defeat in the clasico against Barcelona last weekend to score after just three minutes with Higuain firing home after good work from Arjen Robben.

Robben was the key player in the early stages of the match and a constant threat, setting up Rafael van de Vaart who hit the post and then he himself saw a shot cleared off the line after he had rounded the goalkeeper. Valencia gradually came back into the match and keeper Iker Casillas made a series of stops from David Villa.

In the second half Real,vancouver canucks youth jersey, were hanging on with Casillas parrying a Ruben Baraja strike on to a post but the pressure eased mid-way through the half following the expulsion of Carlos Marchena for his second yellow card. Real had chances to add to their lead but Higuain and Juan Guti in particular missed excellent chances.

Later Atletico Madrid face Espanyol with their confidence sky high after 14 matches without defeat as they have the UEFA Champions League in their sights. "For us this is the most important game of the year. We have to continue climbing and secure ourselves a place in the top four,nfl sewn jerseys, I do not want Espanyol to stop us from achieving that,la lakers team," coach Javier Aguirre said.  For Espanyol it is a very different story and it will be a year that the club will happily forget as they have won only seven games in the last 12 months.

On Sunday, Barcelona face a Villarreal side who will be looking for the visit from the leaders to give them extra impetus as they try and bounce back from a poor run of form. Barca's Rafa Marquez has been ruled out with a thigh strain while Villarreal will be without the injured Javi Venta and Joseba Llorente who is suspended. Sevilla hope to keep on the trail of the leaders with a visit to struggling Mallorca who have fallen into the relegation zone and coach Gregorio Manzano's position is becoming increasingly insecure.

Spain put hoodoos in the past

Spain beat Italy 4-2 on penalties on Sunday to reach the UEFA
EURO 2008 semi-finals and in so doing broke a number of painful
hoodoos.Goalkeeper Iker Casillas saved penalties from Daniele De Rossi
and Antonio Di Natale before Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas
buried the winning spot-kick after the match had ended 0-0 after
extra-time.The Spaniards will play Russia in Thursday’s semi-final in
Vienna, having already beaten them 4-1 in their opening Group D
match. They had never before beaten Italy at either the FIFA World
Cup or the EURO competition, and on three previous occasions over
the last 22 years had lost a quarter-final at a major tournament on
penalties on this exact date: June 22.”This is wonderful, it is impossible to find the words to
express such an emotion,” gasped Fabregas. “We are just
simply delighted. This is an important victory for this young side.
We have been waiting for this for a long time.”Aragones vindicatedFor Spanish coach Luis Aragones it was a case of being
vindicated for not stepping down after they went out in the second
round of the 2006 FIFA World Cup finals.”I would like to congratulate first of all my players for
their remarkable behaviour and maintaining their morale during the
match,” said the 69-year-old. “It was very difficult
because the Italians closed down all the spaces, which made it
difficult to play our natural game.”
His Italian counterpart Roberto Donadoni was disappointed but
proud of his players. “When one loses on penalties, it is
obviously very disappointing,vancouver canucks vancouver canucks,” said Donadoni, who knows at
first hand as a player what it is like having missed one in the
1990 FIFA World Cup semi-final penalty shoot out loss to
Argentina.”We were shattered and tired. I had to study very carefully
throughout the match as to who to change and who to bring on,”
he added. “I think that the players can exit the tournament
with their heads held high, because they gave everything. At the
end of the day, that is a positive. Tomorrow is another
day.”The match took on a predictable pattern in the first half with
Italy defending resolutely and Spain overplaying the passes and
underplaying the urgency. Italy had the first shot on target when
Massimo Ambrosini crossed for Simone Perrotta but his header lacked
power.David Villa had a shot blocked by De Rossi before Gianluigi
Buffon got down quickly to save his free-kick.Fernando Torres then beat two men on Spain’s left but De
Rossi, again, was there to block before David Silva sent the
follow-up just wide.Just after the restart, a ricochet in the box presented Silva
with an opportunity, but having created space for himself, he tried
to bring the ball back onto his favoured left foot and the chance
went begging.Looking for a holeOn 56 minutes Spain finally took a more direct route and
Torres muscled Christian Panucci off the ball only to have his
cross,mlb rays schedule, aimed at Villa, cut out by Giorgio Chiellini. The Juventus
stopper was proving majestic in defence and cut out a cross from
Joan Capdevila that looked destined for Torres’s head.The game was finally starting to liven up and Italy came within
a whisker of taking the lead after a scramble in Spain’s box
with goalkeeper Casillas kicking away a shot from substitute Mauro
Camoranesi.Italy were starting to have more of the game and Luca Toni
headed wide from a great cross by Gianluca Zambrotta.Ten minutes from time Marcos Senna forced Buffon to punch his
fierce free-kick clear,nfl wear, and moments later Buffon spilled a shot
from the same player before clutching on gratefully after the ball
came back off the post.Extra time was immediately more exciting than what had come
before as Silva flashed a shot wide just after the restart. Up the
other end Casillas tipped over a header from Di Natale and Toni
flicked another header just over the top.But the match quickly settled back down into its frustrating
stalemate.Spain had the last chance of the match but Santi Cazorla dragged
a shot wide instead of squaring for the unmarked Villa.

Play-off rivals set for history

2012 年 8 月 8 日 コメント 792 件






Getty ImagesHistory is set to be created regardless of the victor in Saturday’s 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ Asia/Oceania play-off between New Zealand and Bahrain in Wellington. The New Zealand capital will play host to a match that will provide a new chapter in the annals of either New Zealand or Bahrain football.For New Zealand, a win at the sold-out Westpac Stadium will mark the All Whites’s return to the global showpiece for the first time in 28 years since their FIFA World Cup debut at Spain 1982. Following a scoreless draw in Manama last month, visitors Bahrain know that a score draw will be enough to become the world’s smallest nation to progress to world football’s greatest stage.After a resolute defensive showing in the first-leg, All Whites coach Ricki Herbert has vowed to show his team’s offensive strengths in what has been dubbed by local media as the nation’s “most important match in 27 years”. The visitors, despite failing to convert their dominance into a first-leg home win, have significant experience in their line-up and are led by wily Czech mentor Milan Macala.The stakesBahrain enter the contest seeking their first-ever appearance at the FIFA World Cup but it is their second consecutive appearance in the intercontinental play-off stage. The Bahrainis narrowly losing to Trinidad and Tobago four years ago,miami basketball jersey, when Dennis Lawrence famously headed the only goal in the second leg sealing the CONCACAF side’s qualification at the Gulf nation’s expense. With another qualifying decider awaiting them, the Bahrainis know all too well that old lessons must be learned if they are to make amends this time around.Though the home side have only limited recent experience against Asian opposition, the greatest moment in All Whites history is heavily intertwined with the continent. In the 15-match qualification campaign for Spain 1982, New Zealand stunned Saudi Arabia 5-0 before outstripping China 2-1 to book qualification. A regular fixture in the line-up was none other than current All Whites coach Ricki Herbert, whose experience in the emotion-charged atmosphere of a FIFA World Cup qualifier will be invaluable.The preparationHerbert has been blessed by the availability of all his players allowing the entire 18-man squad from the first leg in Manama to be retained. An added bonus is the recent scoring form of the overseas-based contingent, with even captain Ryan Nelsen grabbing a rare goal in Blackburn Rover’s Premier League win last weekend. Also last weekend, striker Rory Fallon scored the winner against Doncaster which fired his Plymouth Argyle out of the drop zone in the English Championship. At the same time, Shane Smeltz continued his remarkable form in the A-League with the winner for Gold Coast United against leaders Sydney FC.In contrast, Bahrain will sorely miss striker Ala’a Hubail, who tore cruciate ligaments in his right knee just days after the first-leg. Another forward, Hussail Ali is also in recovery mode from a knee injury, limiting Macala’s striking options. Despite the difficulties, the side skippered by Mohamed Salmeen proved they still have firepower after routing 2006 FIFA World Cup finalists Togo 5-1 in a recent friendly.Players to watchWith a FIFA World Cup berth on the line, the Kiwis will be buoyed by a record 35,000 home crowd. Spearheading the attacking line will be the 28-year-old Smeltz, who won A-League’s Golden Boot last season with 12 goals. He has maintained his prolific form this season, scoring eleven goals in only nine matches for Gold Coast United.Ismail Abdullatif, who scored a brace against Togo,atlanta football, is expected to fill the breach left by Hubail’s absence. The form of Abdullatif could prove key with the 23-year-old scorer of the dramatic injury-time equaliser against Saudi Arabia in the Asian play-off to set up the meeting with against Kiwis.The stat6 – The number of countries Milan Macala has coached with the 66-year-old yet to take a nation to the FIFA World Cup.The words”There will be plenty of opportunities in the game and I expect it to be an open game. One goal may be enough for us but we never make it easy for ourselves,” Milan Macala, Bahrain coach.”We need to go into the game very much on the front foot and very positive. There needs to be that passion and adrenaline pumping through the veins or we haven’t got the right people in the squad,vancouver canucks stanley cup finals,” Ricki Herbert, New Zealand coach.The team having scored most goals over the two games will qualify for the next round. If both teams score the same number of goals over the two matches, the goals scored away will be counted as double. If the same number of goals is scored away or both matches end without any goals being scored, extra time of two periods of 15 minutes each will be played. If the scores are level after extra time, penalty kicks will be taken to determine the winner in accordance with the procedure described in the Laws of the Game. Add your comment
